Re: Origo 4000
many thank to each and all , this discussion has been very interesting and rather enlightening to / for me in particular as I have 2 yachts both using these origo 4000 stove tops thingy s. which I actually have never even filled with fuel or considered lighting as yet, perhaps now i shall, eh?

The boat we sail on in the Caribbean uses the two burner.. seems fine. I think this is the way to go if you want an alcohol stove, or if you're simply dead set against propane.
Alcohol is slower, but who's in a rush?

I have been using one of their stoves (model 6000) for over 15 years. Same burner in all models. I do not keep a record of time between refills, but their claim seems about right.
We carry a spare gallon of alcohol, and never seem to run short on a two week vacation cruise. We use the oven fairly often also.

|Cruiser2B||What is the consumption rate of this stove...how much cooking time per gallon? A rough idea is all i need.|

I just bought an Alberg 30 and it did not have a stove, it had a place for it though. My wife and I found a great consignment shop in Oriental, NC, the town where we bought our boat. What a great little place. While poking around found an Origo 4000 with cutting board. It was clean and in great condition. Asking price was $150, I offered $100 and got it. Decided to try it out tonight. worked well...i thought. i used denatured alcohol from Taylors Do It....4.99/qt. I put a 1.5 qt tea pot on it and it started boiling in 12.5min. Not as quick as the electric unit in the house but whats the rush, overall it will fit the bill!
